4.3″ Arduino Display Module Pack

The uLCD-43PT-AR is an Arduino Display Module Pack, which includes a uLCD-43PT 4.3″ LCD Display with Resistive Touch, a 4D Arduino Adaptor Shield and 5 way interface cable.

The uLCD-43PT-AR includes an Arduino Adpator Shield which is used to interface the uLCD-43PT Display with an Arduino, to provide a quick and easy interface without any wiring hassles.

The Arduino Display Module Pack enables an Arduino user to quickly connect the 4D Arduino Adaptor Shield to their Arduino, connect the 5 way cable between the Adaptor and the Display Module, and be connected in seconds to start programming their new 4D Systems Display.

The uLCD-43PT-AR has a comprehensive ViSi-Genie Library for the Arduino, which provides a rapid programming experience for Arduino users, to create both simple and complex GUI’s with ease. A Serial Library is also provided to easily interfeace to the Arduino, which prives an simple method to draw primitives such as lines, rectangles, circles and text, displaying images, playing sound and logging data to uSD card.

Utilises the Arduino’s UART Serial Port and a single Digital pin.
